Cove School

     Tel: (847)562-2100
Grades: 5 - 8 | 32 students
The Cove School was established in 1947, to educate students with learning disabilities and to facilitate their return to their neighborhood schools in the shortest possible time.
The heart of Cove's educational philosophy is to design a program that pulls out the child's skills.
The school designs an individual education plan -- a specific plan of action with built-in components for evaluating and measuring progress -- for each student.
Even more importantly, the plan is refined by close observation and continual assessment on a day-to-day basis.
Students with learning disabilities are successful at Cove because they learn through their strengths rather than being hobbled by emphasis on their weaknesses.
